Closing a trilogy of 2021 singles, ‘Wardrobe Of Masks’ is Eagle Eye Jones at their explosive peak. Written alone in a lockdown basement at 3am, songwriter Luke Saunders blends the vocal elasticity and lyrical profundity of Jeff Buckley with the krautrock of DIIV into an inebriating injection of energy.
As a sufferer of disassociation, Saunders delves into detachment, loneliness, and neurosis with a fearlessness that moves from brutal honesty to catharsis. Weaving Ancient Greek mythology into his lyrics, Saunders crafts a dichotomy between uncovering self-truths and forging a fantasy of love defined by a severe detachment from reality.
The frenetic pace, climactic choruses, and snappy melodies explode into the stratosphere reflecting a permanent evacuation from the real world.
The film clip, Directed by longtime collaborator Kane Lehanneur, transitions between a dilapidated WWII bunker and an abandoned house, further encapsulating themes of isolation and mental degradation. Combining the majesty of ‘Alpine Meadows’ with the neurotic nature
of ‘Paperskin’, Lehanneur blends a frenzy of repeating symbols to craft his finest visual experience yet, with an enhanced cinematic experience planned for 2022.
Having consistently sold out shows in 2021, Eagle Eye Jones are set to play ‘Wardrobe’ for the first time at Sydney’s The Vanguard on Dec 11, selling out two shows in under 24hrs. Their relentless dedication to enhanced live performances and meticulously refining their craft has earned Eagle Eye Jones an established and loyal East Coast fanbase, supporting the likes of Lime Cordiale, Ocean Alley, Stonefield, and Tex Perkins.
Another piece of the puzzle falls into place from the forthcoming debut album of Eagle Eye Jones.
